2022 NATIONAL BOARD ELECTIONS

The voting portion of the National Board election cycle has begun, and all election packets with ballot and voting instructions have been mailed to all eligible members.

Each beneficial member will receive a unique control number in his or her election packet which is required to cast a vote – either by mail, website or phone.  Note: only one vote per member will be accepted.

**We have experienced administrative issues from the vendor that is conducting the election process for us but believe that these issues have now been resolved.

A new ballot is being mailed to you with instructions to vote.  When you receive this mailing, please vote, even if you have cast a ballot previously.  The best way for us to ensure that we receive and count all ballots accurately is to start over.  Please see the letter from the vendor that will also be included in the mailing.
